letter to the editor

To the Editor: I am amazed at how far we’ve come in the last 50 years. Our biggest accomplishment has probably been getting our women out of the house and into the workforce. There has been another more recent milestone you may have overlooked. Our school-aged children are now mature enough to...

To the Editor: Early on the morning of April 4th, members of an organization called Operation: 23 to Zero travelled to the lower mall of the Minnesota State Capitol for an annual event.

To the Editor: I am glad that someone printed an article (Star Herald editorial Jan. 7) regarding the manure tracked through town recently. Shortly after I read the editorial, I had the displeasure of a sighting, smelling at the post office and it was horrible. I wish the offender was still there...

Although only the oldest daughter, Thinh, spoke English, both she and her father immediately went to work at A.R. Wood. Thinh (now Jackie), who left her husband behind, was pregnant. She had John on Christmas Day...
To the Editor: Another successful Red Kettle Campaign for Rock County has added $7,032 to local Salvation Army funds.  The many services provided in 2015 included  back-to-school supplies for county school children, supplies for special needs students that would otherwise not be provided, study...
